I think the idea has to do with broader video game RPG tropes. It's common to have a healing female character in video games (Marle in Chrono Trigger, Aerith in Final Fantasy, etc.), so players of both genders end up being more likely to roll female characters when they intend to make a healer. And when we enter situations like dungeon finder where we don't use voice chat and assume players share the same gender as their characters, it creates the impression of there being lots of female players playing healers.
